Finally…everything is in order for Austin. T-shirts are coming on Friday along with the finished and duplicated demo. WHAT A PAIN IN THE ASS. I am giving you my sympathy ahead of time for anyone who ever has to buy a license for an old blues song that they have NO IDEA who wrote.
We wanted to put the song “Little by Little” on our demo for Austin. It is the one and only cover we did for it. Needless to say, we ended up with an issue with licensing the song properly….the issue first was,I didn’t think we needed to buy the license since there is not a bar code on the disc…but of course, we couldn’t get it duplicated with out one. When I found this out I was home on my lunch break and in a hurry. I did a little search on Google and found who I thought was the original writer of the song…ROBERT PLANT, Did you know Robert Plant wrote “Little by Little”? The same song Susan Tedeschi covers on “Just Won’t Burn“….WRONG!
…I bought the wrong license. That was just a minor $106 mistake. What a headache. I was so glad when Monday was over. I made sure I spent Tuesday doing something non-stressful. Tommy and Taylor and I went skiing one last time before we leave in 6 days. I took this picture of them on the lift…hahaha it looks like Tommy has his head resting on Taylor’s shoulder…
It was such a beautiful day. I think all three of us had bright red noses from all the sun. There was hardly anyone else on the mountain and it was spectacular.
Tommorow Katy, Tommy, and I will be going on the Brother Wease show for a radio interview about SXSW and our gig @ Dinosaur BBQ tomorrow night. It will be interesting…tune in if you can to 95.1 The Fox around 10:30am.
I have got to head to bed.
’til next time
